6 Coat Trends We're Spying This Winter
Winter Trends By Mercedes Sanchez
If you tend to dress super comfortable and casual during the colder months- (I'm so guilty of this)- having a statement coat (or two) is an easy way to always look your best -- no matter what you're wearing underneath.
Some of the trends I'm spying this season when it comes to jackets and coats are mixed media, over sized coats, bright parkas, winter whites and of course a warm, pretty puffer. Take a look at some styles below:
Over sized Camel Coat
I find this over sized camel coat to be sexy and practical! It can be worn on a night out with heels, or during the day with a pair of combat or moto boots. Add a chain-strap purse if you want to dress it up. Available at American Apparel for $179.
This weekend I bought a mixed media houndstooth, over sized coat. If you're loving the mixed media trend -- mixture of textures and fabrics -- this trench cotton coat with faux leather sleeves (top) is a more subtle way to wear the fun trend. Michael Kors, $180.
Bright Statement Jacket
No matter what your personal style is, having a statement coat in your wardrobe is a must. A bold, bright wool coat like this one (top), or a jacket you can wear to almost anywhere is always a smart buy. DKNY Coat, Turnlock Wool-Blend Walker, available at Macy's for $170.
I remember getting a pair of leather white booties one winter, and as cool as they were, it wasn't long before they got damaged. If you love white during the holidays, consider making an investment in a flirty white coat you can wear each year. Chances are you'll wear this piece for 'special occasions' just a couple of times throughout the season. Available at your local department store with a range of styles and prices.
Another fun piece to own this season is a chic cape. I love this bright red one (top)-- but there are also plenty of capes available in gray, black or camel tones. Betsey Johnson, $150.
Pretty, Puffy Parka
When you need to dress a little warmer and still want to look your best, a pretty parka like this one is always a fun option. They come in different colors from black, to hunter green, and even bright orange for the more daring- and prices. This Kensie Coat is available at Macy's for $119.
